CAMDEN — Maureen Sauvage, DO, supervising physician of Quarry Hill’s in-house primary care practice, has become board certified in geriatrics, having completed the requirements set by the American Osteopathic Board of Internal Medicine.
Sauvage works in partnership with the practice’s nurse practitioner to cover the primary-care needs of the Camden senior-living community’s residents as well as those of the Knox Center in Rockland.
Before joining Quarry Hill in 2017, Sauvage served as a geriatrician at MorseLife Health System/PACE in West Palm Beach, Fla.; previously, she had practiced at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Bangor and Maine Medical
Partners Geriatrics at Maine Medical Center in Portland. She earned her doctor of osteopathy at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2009 and completed a fellowship in geriatrics at Maine Medical Center in 2013.
In-house practice, launched in 2009 under Richard Kahn, MD, has contributed to enhanced quality of care, swifter response to emergent medical concerns, and fewer hospitalizations for residents, as well as reduced healthcare costs, according to Quarry Hill administrators, in a news release.
Quarry Hill is a Midcoast Maine extended-care retirement community for adults age 55-plus. It is a member of the Pen Bay Medical Center family of services, which also includes Pen Bay Medical Center, Pen Bay Physicians Practices and the Knox Center.
